Harper named USATF Athlete of the Week

INDIANAPOLIS – Dawn Harper has been named USA Track & Field’s Athlete of the Week after winning the women’s 100-meter hurdles and Visa Championship title Sunday at the 2009 USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.

The 2008 Olympic gold medalist, Harper won her first-ever USA Outdoor national title with her win in the Nike Women’s 100m hurdles in 12.36 seconds. A tailwind of 2.2 meters per second at her back helped Harper post the fourth-fastest time ever by an American under any conditions. Harper’s performance gave her 1,220 points and the women’s Outdoor Visa Championship Series title. She also received a $25,000 bonus from Visa.
